I am looking for headphones with price up to 400$. My current setup consists of the following, laptop with lossless music, FiiO E7 as DAC and FiiO E9 as amp. Will be listening only at home.
Today went to store to try out some models which:
Beyerdynamic DT990 (32ohm) - 250ohm demo was not available but if I purchase DT990, I will get 250ohm model
There is no particular music I am listening to just as long as it is bassy. The headphones I have listed in my preference (first - most desirable).
I understand a lot of people recommend D2000 over DT990 but for me, I didn't find the bass quite as punchy (on D2000).
Beyerdynamic DT990 - Strong bass, overall sounded great but bass was really strong which is what I am looking for
Denon AH-D2000 - Overall sounded well balanced, but more towards mids (or highs? - not sure on that one) and bass was not as strong
Sennheiser HD600 - Sounded even more rounded but bass was almost flat compared to other two.
What do you think of it ? Should I also consider DT880 ? Other models I should consider ? (HD650 is out of options as it is too overpriced compared to other models).
EDIT: Completely forgot to mention, in store, headphones were connected via RSA Dark Star amp.
